GOP senators ready $1T infrastructure counteroffer to Biden


WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Republicans are reviving negotiations over President Joe Biden’s sweeping investment plan. On Tuesday, they prepared a $1 trillion infrastructure proposal that would be funded with COVID-19 relief money as a counteroffer to the White House ahead of a Memorial Day deadline toward a bipartisan deal. White House press secretary Jen Psaki declined to weigh in but said: “We expect this week to be a week of progress.” Talks over the infrastructure investment are at a crossroads as Biden reaches for a top legislative priority. The White House is assessing whether Biden can strike a bipartisan deal with Republicans or whether he will go it alone with Democrats if no progress is made.
